Research Groups of the Epidemiology and Public Health Program

  This program is offered jointly by research groups from the Departments of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), Universidad de Alcalá (UA) and Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Rey). Several research groups of the Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII) also participate in this program. This is the single PhD program of Epidemiology and Public Health offered in Madrid and one of the few in Spain.

The main objective of this program is to train top researchers who are able to generate new and relevant knowledge about the frequency and determinants of health disorders and health services use. Also these researchers should be able to transfer this knowledge into to specific actions to improve the health of the population.

Investigations on a number of topics are conducted by 12 research groups. Both principal investigators and other members of the research groups have directed or contributed to important research projects in this field. They also collaborate with several research and public health institutions, particularly the CIBER of Epidemiology and Public Health. Please, see below for a list of the main topics in each research group.
